Estonian Betsafe qualifier Richard Koppel had an amazing run. He was down to crumbs which he doubled up once but was unable to get a triple up an orbit later.

Jordan Dumas min-raised from middle position before Koppel three-bet jammed to 550,000. Petteri Miettinen four-bet shoved for 1,100,000 and Dumas called putting two players at risk.

Ladies Collide in Back-to-Back Hands

Level 31: 100,000/200,000 (200,000)

Ladies First! champion Vilde Ekren jammed for 1.4 million from under the gun and was called by the other lady in the field in United Kingdom’s Indre Stanaityte.

Vilde Ekren: A8
Indre Stanaityte: 44

Ekren won the flip after the 5J58Q ran out on the board.

The next hand, Stanaityte jammed for 475,000 from the small blind and was called by Ekren in the big blind.

Indre Stanaityte: AQ
Vilde Ekren: KJ

Ekren was ahead on the 28J flop and Stanaityte got out of her chair expecting to hit the exit after the 6 turn. However, the A river saved the day and Stanaityte was back in the battle.

Elvijs Kuceruks Eliminated in 14th Place (€6,900)

Level 30: 75,000/150,000 (150,000)
Entries: 13/1,460

Elvijs (Kuceruks) has left the building in a monster hand against Krystian Nalepka where easily Sebastian Mortensen, if we believe what he said he had, could have eliminated both players and nearly half the chips in play.

Mortensen opened for 300,000 from under the gun before Nalepka three-bet to 800,000 from the button. Kuceruks three-bet shoved for 2,875,000 from the blinds. Mortensen went into the tank before he called and Nalepka four-bet shoved for 9,300,000. Mortensen went back into the tank for a couple of minutes before folding.

Elvijs Kuceruks: 1010
Krystian Nalepka: KK

“Did you have jacks or queens?” Nalepka asked.

“I had jacks,” responded Mortensen who seemed mortified about not shoving after a jack came on the 8J4 flop.

As things turned out, Nalepka regainedthe chip lead while eliminating Kuceruks in 14th place for €6,900 after the 7 turn and Q river completed the board.

Krystian Nalepka- 15 million
Sebastian Mortensen – 12 million
Elvijs Kuceruks – 0
